We're Perplexed By Padma In Overalls
I love Padma Lakshmi. She has brought me so many wonderful TV shows that celebrate cake and various other noms. But honestly this outfit has me a little perplexed.
Padma Lakshmi attended the Derek Lam & Jamie Wolf Black and White Jewelry Launch in New York City in Rag & Bone leather strap overalls and Payal Singhal triangle print crop top. Overalls can be easy casual dressing for summer, but the idea of formal overalls seems contradictory to me. And frankly this look is just WEIRD.
It’s so baggy and ill-fitting. And the less said about the dreaded crotch sag the better. But would this have worked if it had been tailored? I’m really not sure. Frankly I just don’t think overalls can work as upscale dressing no matter expensive the fabric is. Overalls were designed to be utilitarian work clothes for farmers and there will always be a hint of that in the design. That said, I love the triangle patterned crop top.
What do you think? Are formal overalls a yes or no?
